This should be fixed... as of about 4 or 5 days ago.

Let me know if problems persist.

I am also having a problem with the search function. I can't search for anything.

It seems that all words relevant to a search are also too common and get ignored.

Examples:

I searched for "void cube" and was told that the words "void" and "cube" were ignored because they were too common.

I searched for "pyramorphix" and was told that the word "pyramorphix" was too common and thus ignored.

I searched for "chunky" (randomly chosen word that I expected would not be overly common) and got some search results.

In other words, searching for specific puzzles does not work on the puzzle forum because the specific puzzle is talked about too much. Cruel irony!

And I have to get this off my chest: I have seen several thread replies which say in response to a question, essentially, "use the search function, dummy." I kindly request that any who are inclined to offer such advice would first try that specific search themselves to see what kind of results they get. In both cases I cited above (void cube and pyramorphix), I performed the search after reading such a reply in a thread about that topic.
